Big Brother show presenters Brian Dowling and Emma Willis have been discussing the success of the live feed ahead of the series launch on the 5th June.
Backing the live feed for the show, Brian seemed confident that it attracts and delivers an extreme potential for Channel 5.
Speaking to Telly Mix, he said: “Everyone always wants to know what’s going on in your neighbour’s house, I listen, I’m really bad. And Big Brother allows you to do that… but in a legal way!”
He further explained that the live feed will be back after every live show for an hour, and added: “It worked really well last year, when we did the live nominations in January, over a million people watched. I think then they realised there was an interest in live feed, so there’s going to be live feed after every live show.”
Emma, who presents Big Brother’s Bit On The Side, is also behind Big Brother’s plans to air the hour a week live feed, claiming that not enough footage was shown of housemates during the last Celebrity series.
“I thought we’d see more of Gareth Thomas then we did, but then it’s that age old debate of we don’t really see anybody because there’s no live feed. It’s hard to tell, Gareth might have done loads!”, she said.
Despite fans reactions for 24 hour live feed, Channel 5 will be continuing with using social media sites, such as Facebook and Twitter, to bring the latest news to fans.
